Further survived by other relatives, friends and the second love of her life, her little dog Wiley.
Judy enjoyed time with her great many friends and family along with traveling when she could. She always was in the mood to go out for dinner and a visit to a casino where she would sometimes do well and then share the winnings with others or she would buy dinner.
Judy worked many years at Briggs and Stratton as well as waitressing at night; she made a great many good friends along the way as she enjoyed being the social butterfly. She was reunited with the love of her life Dennis Braeger and they soon married. Together they retired to Eagle River and spent time doing whatever they wanted, fishing, snowmobiling, socializing and visits with family and friends whenever they could. Judy adored her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren, always asking about them and looking forward to visits.
Judy will be missed by the many people whose lives she touched including family, friends, friends of family, family of friends and anyone lucky enough to know her.
Judy will be laid to rest with her son Jim, in Forest Hill Cemetery in the Village of Pewaukee with a private family service on September 7, 2019
